There’s one major issue voters need to know about before they cast their ballots.
The future of America could depend on it.
Tucker Carlson posed six vital questions for every GOP presidential candidate for 2024.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson gave a number of GOP candidates, who have either declared a bid for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination or are likely to do so, a questionnaire with 6 questions about their views on the war in Ukraine.
These are the questions that were given:
Is opposing Russia in Ukraine a vital strategic interest for America?
What’s our objective in Ukraine and how will we know we’ve achieved it?
What is the limit of money and weapons you’d be willing to send to Zelensky?
Should the United States support regime change in Russia?
Have U.S. sanctions been effective?
Does the United States face the possibility of nuclear war with Russia?
The questions were posed to Donald Trump, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, as well as prospective candidates Mike Pence, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
“Most of the rest of them did get back to us, and we are grateful that they did,” Carlson said, adding, “In general, the answers were fascinating, some of them were so thoughtful and so smart they give you hope for the Republican Party. With only a few exceptions, their answers bore no resemblance at all to the statements you see every day from Mitch McConnell and various Republican committee chairmen in Congress.”
Former President Donald Trump said he’d require Europe to front more of the costs for the Ukrainian war.
“Start by telling Europe that they must pay at least equal to what the U.S. is paying to help Ukraine,” he said in part. “They must also pay us, retroactively, the difference. At a staggering 125 Billion Dollars, we are paying 4 to 5 times more, and this fight is far more important for Europe than it is for the U.S.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has not yet announced a presidential run, criticized the Biden administration for footing the bill of a war with no objective.
“Without question, peace should be the objective. The U.S. should not provide assistance that could require the deployment of American troops or enable Ukraine to engage in offensive operations beyond its borders,” DeSantis said, warning against providing aid that could be seen as an escalation against Russia.
“F-16s and long-range missiles should therefore be off the table. These moves would risk explicitly drawing the United States into the conflict and drawing us closer to a hot war between the world’s two largest nuclear powers. That risk is unacceptable.”
While Trump, Ramaswamy, DeSantis, Noem, and Abbott appear to be in favor of limiting our support to Ukraine, Haley, Pence, Scott, and Christie fell into the more hawkish camp – with Pence calling Vladimir Putin’s threat of nuclear war a “bullying tactic.”
